What is love? Why do we fall in love with the people we do? What makes love last -- and fade? What happens when love goes wrong? And what are the emotional consequences of living without love? Psychologist Glenn D. Wilson and journalist Chris McLaughlin unite to examine the latest international scientific research on love, attraction and sexual behaviour. They reveal absorbing and controversial insights into the causes and complexities of human emotion, and the differences between the mating games of men and women. As people live longer, are they less content to settle for an imperfect deal? Will this lead to serial relationships replacing lifelong partnerships? Can men and women ever live happily together? The Science of Love helps unravel some of the mysteries of love: that extraordinary feeling that causes both agony and ecstasy, but which ultimately 'makes the world go round'. Book jacket.
